France national team boss, Didier Deschamps, has suggested Olé Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t understand Paul Pogba like he does, and that’s why he is struggling to get the best out of the midfielder.

The 27 year old raised eyebrows recently, after admitting this is the most difficult period he has seen during his football career, and that playing for France was a breath of fresh air.

The comments have been perceived as a hint the player isn’t happy, and could be on his way soon, with Real Madrid and Juventus said to be admirers.

Didier Deschamps had a few days ago, blamed Solskjaer for the way he has treated the star, and now, he is suggesting the Norwegian doesn’t know how to use him.

“Just see what he was able to do in Portugal and what he did tonight,” said Deschamps.

“I know him, I know how he works. He has pride and above all he has talent. When you have to defend, he can defend. When he has the opportunity to express himself, he is able to do so.

“Paul is a top-level player and I hope what he did with us will be useful to him when he gets back to his club.”

Pogba hasn’t played in United’s last two games, and will be hopeful for a turnaround when we play Everton this weekend.
